    "A survivor mentality wasn't much different from a victim mentality because it still kept me connected to the pain." Wow. So much poignant truth to chew on!

    While I get what Meg & Lynn were saying about “all sin cost Jesus His Life” I don’t agree with there attitudes. This sin is STILL costing lives. It’s killing innocent children because they’re fathers are too self piteous to get the help they need. It’s killing the heart of precious daughters of Christ who only wanted to feel loved and treasured, it’s killing families formed from God’s own bosom, it’s killing Churches who are supposed to be a light shining through the darkness, and it’s killing communities which each of us need to feel safe to thrive...the roots of sexual sin may have started when these men were younger and sad, but the real tragedy is how they continue to feed it. I know they didn’t know any other way, but if I run you over with a’re still flattened whether I meant to or it was an accident. They are not victims Anymore. They are now Perpetrators. Those whom they flatten while driving the bus to their drug of choice are the True Victims. Men who refuse to get help will care less that you give them this pat on the back. They turn your pearls back at you and trample them to dust at your feet. These addicts are sick and smart. I’ve seen too many women be told that their sin is just as bad as their husbands and I Disagree. Jesus would, too.

    Such a great podcast. I love Meg Wilson - her book helped me get through my betrayal, it was so helpful and I am forever thankful that the Lord led me to her book. After hearing Lynn I need to look into her book! I've been on this journey for 8 years now with still relapses every couple of months. I need the continual reminder of hope - hope in the Lord. Thank you!

    My husband and I minister to couples that are going through these type of circumstances. We will use this as a resource to share with them so thank you. If we win the book, it will go in our resource room and loan it out to others that need it.

    Thankful for these women for sharing their stories. In the wake of discovering my husband's betrayal I scoured the internet for similar stories and a guidebook on what to do. Wish I had known about this podcast and Lynn and Meg's books then
